If it's an ERIS they have a 1 click root.

All the guy asks is that if you use it and like it, support some type of youth outreach or make a donation. (Honor system)

Works very well and the script even does a backup for you in case you need to roll it back. I found it in the nandroid folder when I was making a backup for XTRSense.

If it's another phone just cruise around XDA. Lots of good info and all of the more popular phones usually have a very simply rooting process.

Also it's definitely worth checking out the rollup thread.

It basically has everything you'd need to accomplish backing the phone up, changing roms, rooting, and links to quite a few ROMs. There is also a detailed way to root the phone if you prefer to get your hands dirty.

If you want to take a stock phone and load a rom to it, you'd need to do the following steps.

1. root the phone
2. flash amon recovery
3. make a nandroid backup
4. download and install your rom
5. ???
6. Profit
